HITOE® (single), that's it
"I want to go out lightly with my hands without having a bag!"
The HITOE® series was born to fulfill that desire.
"Light and comfortable comfort"
Functionality, portability, storage capacity. I am convinced that HITOE® that has all these features will enrich your life.
A small purse? Thin wallet?
What I wanted to make was a wallet that fits in my back pocket. A small wallet is convenient to put in a handbag or pouch. However, if you put it in your pocket, it will be thick and you will be worried about bulging. For a pocket or slim bag, a thin wallet is better than a small wallet.
"HITOE® (single) structure" that stands out thinness
The reason why the wallet is thicker is because the card and the coin overlap. The solution to this is the HITOE® (single) structure (patent office design registered). Instead of stacking cards and coins, they are distributed horizontally, making it much thinner than conventional wallets.
In addition, there are more than 10 common leather wallets.HITOE® is small4 pieces. This is the smallest wallet that can hold the coins and cards surveyed.
10 bills, 15 coins, 8 cards. Even with this much storage, the wallet is only 15mm thick. A typical wallet is 30mm or more. It is overwhelmingly thin.
I don't give up even if it's thin
There are other "thin wallets". However, the number of cards to enter was 3-5, the cards were easy to drop, the coin pocket was too small, and it was never easy to use.
HITOE L-zip S does not compromise on thinness.
It can be stored even though it is thin. It has a simple structure that is both thin and easy to use.
Challenge to "thick leather"
In this leather, oil penetrates deep into the fibers. If it is thinly strained, the original texture of the leather will be lost and the strength will also deteriorate.
"Leather remains thick, but the wallet is thin." We challenged and reached this conflicting challenge with HITOE®. For the exterior, "genuatsu" leather with a thickness of about 2 mm, which allows you to fully enjoy the original charm of leather. However, the central wallet is only 7mm thick. It is a "thin wallet" of "thick leather" that has never existed before.
Upgrading to HITOE L-zip S to a unique presence
Taking advantage of the many voices received in the previous model, thoroughly improved the points of concern. Not only is it thin, but banknotes and coins have been reborn as wallets that can be used quickly.
Improvement XNUMX Ease of use of banknotes
The inside has been redesigned so that it is easy to use without breaking the bill. Banknotes and coins can now be removed from the same side. The clearance is also large, and banknotes can be used more conveniently and speedily.
Improvement point XNUMX Custom-made puller
The fastener puller is an original tool whose mold is custom made to YKK. A simple design consisting of straight lines and arcs, and no logo on the table. It is hard to be caught in the pocket, unnecessary force is not applied to the slider, and durability has been increased.
The logo is engraved small on the back to make it inconspicuous. It is convex and also serves as non-slip. When viewed from the side, the thicker tip is the result of sticking to the pinch.
Although it is a small part, SYRINX's philosophy on design is condensed.
Improvement point XNUMX Polishing edge
The edge of the leather edge has been polished.
We are worried that the edge of the paint that is generally adopted will crack or peel off over time. It takes time, but there is no need to worry about polishing the edge, and the more you use it, the more it tastes.
6 thoughtful ease of use
01 Do not fold banknotes
Banknotes are used around the bottom of the wallet without folds. The trick is to pull out the whole banknote a little and then put it along the outside. Both banknotes and coins can be handled quickly.
(* Banknotes can be folded in two.)
02 The shallower coin pocket is easier to use
If the coin pocket is deep, you will not be able to find and remove coins smoothly. HITOE®'s shallow, wide open coin pocket lets you quickly find and retrieve the coin you need. If you close the zipper, you don't have to worry about coins spilling. It is shallow but can hold 20 coins. The maximum number of coins that can be used without waste is ¥ 999 = 15 coins (* photo), but there is still room.
03 Convenient double fastener for both cash and cashless
Special fasteners with sliders on both the cash and card sides.
The card and cash can be accessed quickly with minimum operations, respectively, and there is no fear of suddenly dropping coins when using the card. Both cache and cashless can be used conveniently.
If you open the two fasteners to the side of the coin pocket as shown in the picture, you can use the card and cash all at the same time.
04 Plenty of cards
Cards are put together in one place and can store about 8 cards at a lean thickness. When you close the zipper, you don't have to worry about accidentally dropping an important card.
05 Shape easy to put in and out of pocket
HITOE® has one end thinly bound. Therefore, putting it in and out of the pocket is smooth without getting caught.
06 Durable fastener EXCELLA
YKK's top-level fastenersEXCELLAAdopted.EXCELLAIs a fastener with extremely high dimensional accuracy and little play in meshing. For this reason, it may be hard to start using the product, and you may feel a little bit caught, but by using it, it will gradually become smoother.
The cheaper the fastener, the greater the play of the dimensions and the lighter the movement. However, the bite is sweet and can cause bites, disengagement and trouble. Carefully polished the entire surface of the element one by one, exquisite EXCELLAIs the best zipper you can use for a long time.
Careful tailoring by Japanese leather craftsmen
SYRINX's lean minimal design requires high precision. For this reason, SYRINX products are not mass-produced in factories, but carefully selected from small workshops in Japan that have high technical skills, and have been carefully implementing SYRINX's commitment.

"Liscio" means "smooth" in Italian. The leather used in this series is "Vachetta leather" which has been introduced in Tuscany, Italy since the early 9th century. Leather tanned with natural tree tannins and thoroughly impregnated with oil. The most distinctive feature is the use of beef leg oil in the fatliquoring process, and it has a unique suppleness. Beef leg oil does not easily penetrate into leather, and it takes time to soak the fiber deep. However, once penetrated, it is hard to come off, and you can enjoy moist and glossy leather almost permanently.
With its smoothness that sticks to it, it has a beautiful and deeply beautiful color and stands out among the many Italian leathers.
Deepening colors and aging
Vivid and transparent coloring is done only with dyes. The scratches and stains remain as they are because they are not hidden by embossing or pigment. However, the fact that you can enjoy the texture of raw leather as it is is the proof that it is the highest quality natural leather. Please accept scratches and stains as a unique character.
The leather finished with dye deepens the color as you use it, and you can enjoy aging. When it comes to aging, there is no leather to the right of Vachetta leather. It is beautiful, and the color and luster deepen in a short time.
Because it is a leather that grows together, it is also a great gift for a new start such as enrollment, promotion, or employment.
Smooth and sticky texture. There is a transparent feeling that you can see the expression of the raw leather. The more you use it, the deeper the color and luster.
Cammello(Camel): Classic color. Gradually beautiful candy.
Fragola(Strawberry): From bright vermilion to deep brick.
Piombo(lead): From gray brown to deep dark brown with low saturation
Lattuga(lettuce): From beautiful young leaf color to olive color with deep luster.
Agave(Agave): Blue-green gradually darkens.
Nero(black): From matte expression to gradually glossy black.
No oil care required
I think that the surface of ordinary leather is shiny from the beginning. However, the oil on the surface volatilizes over time, loses its luster and becomes dry. That is why regular oil care is essential.
This leather has a matte look with no luster. This is because even if you do not apply oil to the surface, the oil will soak into the fibers and the leather will not dry. The more you use it, the oil contained inside will ooze out from the pores and coat the epidermis to give it a glossy appearance. Therefore, no oil care is needed.
Please note that adding ready-made leather oil may cause the leather to become over-oiled and become too soft.
Doing nothing and giving the leather a moderate stimulus is the best maintenance.
The surface is soft and easily scratched because it is not coated, but some scratches will recover naturally if rubbed with a finger. Deep wounds become familiar with aging and change into leather texture.
About white powder
Since it is a very oily leather, the oil component that oozes out from the pores may become white powder depending on the temperature, humidity and ventilation conditions.
This is the same phenomenon as bridle leather bloom, etc., not a product defect.
It is especially noticeable in winter, when the temperature is low, and it may look like a mold, but it can be easily wiped off with a soft cloth. (Parts that are difficult to remove finely, such as stitches, disappear when heated.)
These symptoms are one of the good properties of oily leather. We appreciate your understanding.
The cattle are grazed on the ranch so that they can grow healthy without stress. The cow is engraved with the "living proof (natural mark)" on the leather.
・ Scratch: Original skin scars, scratches and spots.
-Uneven color: The fiber density and thickness are different. Occurs depending on lots and parts.
Blood line: A streak pattern in which traces of blood vessels immediately below become dark.
・ Tiger: Streaky stripes at places where wrinkles tend to come close, such as near the neck
Usually, these are often hidden by embossing and pigments, in which case the original texture of leather is lost.
The finish that makes use of the base material like this leather may have natural marks, but you can enjoy the original texture of leather.
The Natural Mark is a proof of good quality natural leather, and we ask that you acknowledge it as the unique character of the product.
(Scratches, uneven color, blood lines, wrinkles)
